Enduring Love

Fifty three years ago today, they both said “I do”...

And they did...

For over five decades, they have shared much laughter...and experienced their share of sorrows...

They have enjoyed abundant times...and endured lean times...

They have seen their family grow with new generations...and said goodbye to beloved older generations...

They raised their family in church and made sure each one knew their journey through life needed to be alongside the Lord...

Singing in harmony...both vocally and within their hearts, has kept their marriage strong these many years...

He always kisses her before either of them leaves to go anywhere...just in case...

Happy Anniversary to Harry and Wilma! 

God could not have blessed me with better in-laws!

Seems to be a season of anniversaries for a lot of bloggers! What a wonderful witness and testimony to the power of God's grace and sustaining love. I hope to one day have a "Harry and Wilma" legacy to pass along to the next generation.

True love is so amazingly
beautiful...such a testimony
to the Lord. Your mother-in-law
is still a beautiful woman!
What is her secret? I know!
It's having the Lord at the
center of their marriage.
Be blessed,
Sandy
